This July, our Akira Kurosawa film club takes a look at The Quiet Duel, Kurosawa’s 1949 film starring Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura.
It is a little over two years since we last took a look at the film. In fact, for a quick background reading to the relevant film criticism, I suggest taking a look at my previous introduction!
And while I am in the subject of linking, take a look at our past discussions as well:
- The Quiet Duel: Mangled Metaphors
- The Quiet Duel: Shooting Sequence
- The Quiet Duel: A Strange Cut
- The Quiet Duel: Was the Theme Lost in the Shuffle?
For information about the availability of the film, see Akira Kurosawa’s Films on DVD. For more information about our film club, including the full schedule, see the film club page. In August, we will be watching Yasujiro Ozu’s brilliant Late Spring from 1949. For DVD availability, see the film club page.

For some reason, this disc is not currently available from Netflix, so I may not be able to participate in whatever discussion ensues unless that changes.
